NHL Notes

1. PRONGER OUT OF ACTION UNTIL PLAYOFFS

Philadelphia Flyers’ supporters received some crushing news on Thursday when it was made public by GM, Paul Holmgren, that veteran defenceman, Chris Pronger, won’t be back until post season. Apparently the 36 year-old Pronger has had a setback with his hand injury,  but according to his doctors will be one hundred percent healthy come play-off time. “We’re not going to be real aggressive at this point,” Holmgren said about rushing Pronger back before the play-offs. “Obviously the play-offs are more important right now.” This season Pronger had four goals and 25 points in only 50 games.

2. CROSBY BACK ON SKATES

After three months of sitting on the sidelines Pittsburgh Penguins’ captain, Sidney Crosby, finally was cleared for skating. There has been no speculation from GM, Ray Shero, as to when Crosby, who has been out with a concussion, will be back in the line-up. For now he is taking things slow as he is taking part in morning skates with his teammates. “It was a lot of fun to be back out there,” said Crosby, who hasn’t been cleared for contact drills. “It’s just a small step, with a lot to go.”

3. OSHIE BACK IN BLUES LINEUP

St. Louis Blues scoring forward, T.J. Oshie, apologized to team management and his teammates after serving a two game suspension for missing a team practice. “I was irresponsible. I made a mistake,” said Oshie, who has 10 goals and 30 points on the season. “I realize that. It was my full responsibility to get here (on Monday) and get here on time.” Oshie will be back in the line-up on Friday night, when the Clagary Flames come to town.
